Copenhagen: Sister Joan Chittister’s advice to President Obama (Video)

“Mr. President, your election is far larger than the United States.”

COP 15 — 12/8/2009

In the video below, Odyssey Networks Mark Dowd interviews three religious leaders at the Copenhagen summit on climate change and asks them to give 30 seconds of advice to President Barack Obama. The first is heretical, and now, borderline anti-American, Benedictine Sister Joan Chittister…

TEXT/VIDEO  

Chittister: Mr. President, you were not elected to save the past. What made America great in energy is both scarce and dangerous now, it’s gone, it’s deadly, and it’s over. Begin alternative energy systems immediately in the United States. Lead now.

Dowd: Okay, that was 30 seconds. But, if you had 15 seconds more with President Obama, knowing that he is a religious man, what message would you say from a Christian prespective?

Chittister: Mr. President, your election is far larger than the United States. You have a moral obligation to the rest of this world. You (sic), nobody goes to heaven without tears in their eyes. Cry for those that have been harmed by the game we’re playing with energy, and save them too.

One thought on “Copenhagen: Sister Joan Chittister’s advice to President Obama (Video)”

  1. We cannot expect anymore from someone who finds it impossible to call God, Father, who finds it impossible to believe that old ditty she was taught in childhood that Jesus is present Body Blood, Soul, and Divinity in the Eucharist, who believes original sin , fall and redemption is just something “men” made up in the middle ages.
    “For the sake of His sorrowful passion, Have mercy on me, Sr. Joan, and on the whole world.”
